Jipsin are Korean traditional sandals made of straw. Koreans have worn straw sandals since ancient times. They are categorized as yi (이, ), shoes with a short height, and the specific name can vary according to the materials used, as with samsin, wanggolsin, cheongol jisin, and budeulsin.[1] In the Joseon period, jipsin were worn mostly by commoners, working farmers, and scholars while on outings. Today's Jipsin style is inherited from the Joseon period.
